Linda Baten Johnson
Growing up in White Deer, Texas a small town that boasts one blinking light, Linda Baten Johnson won blue ribbons for storytelling, and the dream of making up tales to entertain was born. As an adult, Linda spent many hours packing and unpacking as she and her husband George have lived in 15 different places in the United States and enjoyed a three-year assignment in England. In between moves, Linda earned her Master of Arts degree in English and history, worked as a Realtor, a teacher, and logged many volunteer hours. One volunteer assignments was a National Park lighthouse in Michigan where she and her husband lived in the assistant keeper’s cottage. That posting inspired Mystery of Desolation Point, and she used historical records as the basis for the middle grade novel. Linda loves research and all books include an historical element. In her Young Texans Series, she focuses on specific Texas topics such as the Galveston Hurricane, the original 300 settlers, and Juneteenth. She currently writes squeaky-clean romance novellas and cozy mysteries. Linda loves traveling and collecting experiences and stories. Some of her favorite memories include parasailing, white water rafting, and being mistaken for a tour guide in Mexico and in Russia. Her children and grandchildren tease her about never going anywhere without orchestrating an educational experience. She loves gathering with family and friends and opening her home at Thanksgiving for a celebration of the many blessings we enjoy.Read more Read less
